How GE Created a Pervasive Culture of Data-Driven Insights @ Scale


Applying big data to an internal business use case is challenging and requires expertise and focus. Even harder is scaling it out across a global enterprise. Don Perigo explains how GE Power Services has been able to deliver results in an uncertain world by leveraging big data and scaling its platform across a global employee base that spans over 25 countries.


Don Perigo is the IT Chief Enterprise Architect of GE Power Services, a $15 billion organization within GE Power. Power Services is a combination of two of the best service teams in the power industry – GE’s Power Generation Services and the former Alstom Thermal Services (acquired Q4 ’15.) In his current role, he is responsible for assessing Technology Opportunities, Threats, and Execution Challenges and turning them into Strategic Options, Visibility to Issues, and publishing Enterprise Guardrails. He and his team define the future state of technology portfolios and IT program investments, and then execute and lead to achieve these objectives. Additional responsibilities include driving strategic programs including Business Intelligence and Big Data.
